Michelin pledges funding for a GPSNR (Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber) project in Thailand, the world’s largest natural rubber producer.
This three-year project will empower smallholder farmers to enhance their livelihoods, while creating positive environmental outcomes. Agroforestry aims to integrate various trees, plants, and food crops into farming systems.
The positive impacts of agroforestry systems include:
· Additional income streams,
· Reduction in agrochemical inputs,
· Increased carbon sequestration and biodiversity.
